Jared Baker of Animal Tales, an organization that educates, entertains and inspires through live educational animal programs, visited the St. Clair Scenic Regional Library on Wednesday, June 26, to help children explore “creepy critters.” Here, Baker holds a black rat snake as he talks about the reptile to the nearly 100 children and adults who were in attendance. Animal Tales advertises itself as a group that provides “edzoocation” through an experienced staff in a safe and effective learning environment that both engages and involves participants. It is based in Mayfield, Ky.
